Dentures in Hallam

Missing teeth can be a source of frustration and embarrassment. You may feel self-conscious about your looks and have difficulty chewing your food. Our dental clinic recommends dentures as an alternative way to replace your missing teeth. They can help you regain your confidence in your smile.
Dentures are produced from an impression of your mouth and are made from acrylic resin to match the colour of your teeth. It is a removable dental restoration to replace your missing teeth.

Benefits of Dentures

Dental clinics can now provide dentures that look better than ever before. This dental restoration lets you eat your favourite foods and speak without any problems. Patients with missing teeth might benefit from dentures in a variety of ways. Here are the following advantages of dentures:
Improves the appearance of your smile: Dentures are an excellent option for people who feel self-conscious about their smile. They have a natural look that mimics your other teeth, which gives you the ability to smile freely without worrying about what others think.
Reduce further oral issues: Even if you only have one missing tooth, it raises your risk of gum disease and other oral health problems. Dentures can help you minimise your chances of getting these dental problems by replacing your natural teeth.
Customised based on your needs : Our dental clinic offers customised dentures to give you the most comfortable fit possible. It means you can talk and normally eat without experiencing pain. If there are changes in your jaw bone, our dentists can adjust your dentures based on the size of your mouth.
Easy to clean: You can maintain a good oral hygiene routine with minimal effort because dentures are removable. Using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a special cleaner, you can prevent plaque or bacteria buildup that could lead to gum disease.

The cost of a denture is dependent on many factors, such as the type of denture (temporary, removable, or complete dentures), the material used in its construction, and the condition of your oral health. Dentures can cost anywhere from $900 to $4000, depending on which tooth needs to be fixed right away.

Denture relining is a method that your dentist may use to give your existing dentures a new, more comfortable fit without replacing them. If you’ve been seeing changes in your dental tissue, bone, and mouth over time, it may be a good time to make an appointment with your dentist.

The dentist will clean your dentures and file a small amount of material on the plate while performing a denture reline. After removing what’s causing uncomfortable contact in your mouth, they’ll apply resin to your denture. You need to bite down gently on it to make an impression on your dentures.

The problem with wearing dentures is that it puts you at risk of developing oral health problems like periodontal abscesses (swelling) near your gums caused by plaque buildup during dental work. Gum disease is more common in people who wear dentures, so it’s important to be aware of the risks before getting one.

Dentures have alternatives that include dental implants, overdentures, and tooth-supported fixed bridges.

Dental implants can provide a more natural-looking smile. However, it is not an option for everyone as it requires strong and healthy gums or jawbones. Overdentures are another alternative to dentures that preserve some of your natural teeth to support the jawbone. This approach is ineffective for individuals with inactive periodontal disease (gum disease).

When you come to Narre Warren Dental Care, our dentist will assess the condition of your teeth and recommend the best treatment that will work best for you.

A comprehensive examination will be the first step in getting dentures. The dentist who is going to do your procedure will assess your teeth and check for any oral health issues that might come up during the process.

Different treatments exist for different people, depending on their individual needs. There are patients who require additional dental treatments prior to receiving dentures. Some people need radiation therapy to make their gums ready for post-denture prosthetics like crowns or bridges.

You may need dentures if you have left your oral problems untreated for a long time. You are a good candidate for dentures if you have missing teeth, severe tooth decay, dental injuries, or trauma.

You should visit the dentist at least once every six months. In this way, dentists can monitor the health of your teeth and gums and address problems before major oral problems like cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and periodontal disease develop.

Different types of dentures are available based on your needs and preferences. Here are some examples of types of dentures:

  • Complete dentures
  • Partial dentures (Lower and upper dentures)
  • Retained Dentures
  • Night Guards

Our dental team will assess the condition of your oral health to determine what type of denture will work best for you.

The estimated time for getting dentures is between six weeks to three months. It’s important to know that the time it takes for your new dentures to arrive will vary depending on several factors. For example, if a tooth extraction is required, this can slow down your process and usually requires about three months.

If you don’t need any additional dental treatments, it may only take 4 weeks to get your new set of dentures.

After getting your dentures, avoid eating hard and sticky foods. Soft foods are recommended after obtaining your newly-fitted dentures. Keep your dentures in good shape by eating a few small meals each day, and then start eating solid foods one by one.

Once the denture is in place, your gums and bite may take some time to adjust. You may have soreness and pain, so give yourself some time to adjust and try to consume soft foods like the following:

  • Ice cream
  • Pudding
  • Broth or soup
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Yogurt
  • Soft bread
  • Cooked rice
  • Soft, skin-free fish
  • Pasta
  • Soup with soft noodles

The dentures will gradually adjust to your mouth after a few days. You won’t have any problems eating solid foods again once you’re used to them.

With softer gum options available on the market, gum producers are responding to a growing demand for soft chewing gum. It is important that you chew your gum evenly and slowly if you wear dentures.

In many cases, dentures are held in place by tight clips called attachments or by implants. If your denture is made with this type of fitting, you may not have any trouble chewing gum at all.

You don’t have to wear your denture 24/7 because it can accelerate bone loss due to the additional pressure it adds to the gums. Wearing dentures for a long time can deprive your gums of rest, which can speed up the pace of bone loss. Bone loss affects oral health as well as the fit of dentures, making them uncomfortable to wear or eat with.

If you wear dentures, it’s critical to keep them clean by taking them out when you sleep. It is not recommended to sleep with dentures at night because your gums need a break after wearing dentures.

Wearing dentures while you sleep could be harmful to your health. Studies have shown that people who wear dentures 24/7 may develop more dental problems.
